Website Now Launched.

For a few weeks now we've been trialling the beta version of the new website, which allows you to see more detail about your runs, and also gives you the ability to share more of those details when you tweet or share your workout details on Facebook.

The site includes a table of statistics for each stage/interval, along with a  map of your run (we will also be adding the ability to publish statistics WITHOUT the map).

The launch of the website marks the beginning of a brand new cloud service for RunDouble. In the future you can expect to see:

  • Follow other users, and see their updates
  • Add comments to other users runs.
  • A new service allowing you to create your own workout plans.
  • Share and upload workout plans to your phone. 
In the very near future, users will be able to generate their own content for the site, and we could see a dramatic rise in the number of workout plans available to users of the app, offering choice to the user. 

Look out for the new features coming soon.

Map capability added.

Today we released a new version of RunDouble, adding these new features:

  • Mapping of all new runs completed (these can be viewed on-phone, and soon shared on the web)
  • Half-way notifications to tell you when to turn around.
  • Option to shuffle selected playlist, when using the internal player. 
This is a relatively major release and hopefully adds to the experience of existing and new users. 

We will be holding back on feature releases now, and focussing on building the web services to further enhance the platform. New releases until then will be to fix bugs.

Introducing RunDouble C25K and more!

Press Release

Introducing the RunDouble, the new running app for Android. Combining timed and distance based interval prompting, set to the users' choice of music, with accurate distance and pace tracking, RunDouble provides the novice runner with the tools to complete the Couch to 5K programme, and go on to bigger and better things. Whether that be improving pace on the 5K or even training for the 10K distance, and beyond, there is a plan to suit everyone. 

What's more, the first two weeks of each plan are completely free, allowing runners to try before they buy. However, at less than the cost of a bottle of Gatorade, upgrading to the full plan is not going to break the bank. In fact, all 3 sets of plans can be purchased for less than the cost of a single trip to the gym. 

With new features are being added every week, the list is already very rich: 
  • Regular pace updates
  • Pace alarm (target pace)
  • Open ended runs
  • Couch to 5K plan
  • Bridge to 10K and Ease into 10K
  • 5K improver plan (and more to come)
  • Play a standard Android playlist, or use another music player (Pandora,, Spotify, Google Music etc)
Also in the pipeline is a cloud service, allowing users to publish and examine their runs, along with the ability to create and share their own plans. 

I hope you will try RunDouble, and agree that it has a great deal to offer.

Thank you
